In a wild Major Division final that saw featured 13 runs, most of which were unearned, and wasn't decided until the final out, the Ocean View Rockies claimed the District 62 banner after holding on for a 7-6 victory over the Huntington Valley Sooners on Saturday at Huntington Valley's Inspiration Field.
"That was a tough one," Ocean View Manager Tod Minato said after his team came back from a 2-0 deficit, built a 7-2 lead, and then fended off a Huntington Valley charge over the final three innings. "Coming to Huntington Valley, then having to play their No. 1-seed, we knew this game would be tough. And, it was.
"It was a sloppy game, played kind of tight, but our kids did a good job of closing this one out. Our league was really competitive this year, and I think that really helped us today and throughout the district tournament."
